World news Hess dead at 93; Violence may erupt BERLIN (AP) — Rudolf Hess, the last imprisoned member of Adolf Hitler's inner circle, will be buried in a remote Bavarian village, and the jail he occupied alone for 21 years will be destroyed, Allied authorities said. Officials at several state police agencies said the Bonn Interior Ministry' had issued a warning to be on guard for possible right-wing violence by admirers of Hess, who died Monday at the age of 93. A West German radio station reported that Hess was to be buried secretly Tuesday, with only a few family members present. It was not possible to immediately confirm the report, and an Allied official said this morning that the body was still in Berlin. Neither family members nor the Hess family lawyer, Alfred Seidel, could be reached for comment on the report. Hess rose to power at the side of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, eventually becoming deputy fuehrer of the Third Reich. He was said to have been responsible for the Nazis' "Lebensraum" (living space) ideology, the idea that Germany needed more territory for all Germans. However, he was less powerful than other Hitler lieutenants. Saudi diplomat said dead in Tehran RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) —A Saudi Arabian diplomat has died at a Tehran hospital of injuries suffered in a mob attack on the Saudi Embassy, the government announced Tuesday. A Foreign Ministry statement said that political attache Mussaed al-Ghamdi died Monday night "as a result of injuries inflicted upon him during the vile aggression on the (Saudi) embassy by demogogic elements in Tehran." It also blamed "the inhuman attitude" of Iranian authorities, who it said prevented him from being flown to a Saudi hospital. But Iran's official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted a source at the Iranian Foreign Ministry as saying al-Ghamdi died of a hem- morhage resulting from his transfer to Tehran airport. Al-Ghamdi was detained along with three other Saudi diplomats after angry crowds of Iranians ransacked the embassy on Aug. 1 in protest of deadly clashes between Iranian pilgrims and Saudi riot police in Mecca, Islam's holiest city. Authorities reported that 402 persons, including 275 Iranians, were killed in stampedes and scuffles in Mecca July 31. Attack on Parliament leaves 14 hurt COLOMBO. Sri Lanka (AP) — Attackers hurled several hand grenades into a governing party meeting in the Parliament Tuesday, wounding four Cabinet members and 10 legislators, shortly before legislators were to discuss a new Tamil peace plan, witnesses said. One of the grenades exploded 10 yards away from President Junius R. Jayewardene, but he was not injured, witnesses said. One or more attackers threw the grenades at Jayewardene through an open door of a conference room where he was chairing a meeting, the witnesses said. The attackers slipped away in the ensuing confusion. Some witnesses said Prime Minister Ranasinghe Premdasa suffered a leg wound in the attack, but Jayewardene later said the prime minister had escaped injury. Among the wounded was National Security Minister Lalith Athulathmudali, officials said. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which came about 40 minutes before Parliament was to meet under tight security to discuss a peace accord aimxd at ending a 4-year insurgency by Tamil rebels. Mexican candidates * forum starts MEXICO CITY (AP) — The ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party opened its first series of public forums with leading presidential candidates. Mexico City Mayor Ramon Aguirre, the first of six candidates to meet with party leaders, started his presentation of 10 main points by saying national sovereignty is the highest value for Mexico to safeguard. "National sovereignty is a value that can never be negotiated," he said in Monday's meeting with the party's National Executive Committee. To follow in coming days will be the other five Cabinet members who were recognized as leading candidates last Thursday, speaking in alphabetical order. They will be Interior Secretary Manuel Bartlett. Energy and Mines Secretary Alfredo del Mazo, Attorney General Sergio Garcia Ramirez, Public Education Secretary Miguel Gonzalez Avelar and Budget and Planning Secretary Carlos Salinas de Gortari. Helicopter carrier cruises in Gulf MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — The U.S. helicopter carrier Guadalcanal steamed through the central Persian Gulf behind a mine-sweeping helicopter, and Iran claimed its navy had joined efforts to ferret out mines threatening shipping in the area. Iran's President Ali Khamenei said the United States will- suffer a "crushing blow" if its warships attack Iranian ships or ports. Iran has widely been blamed for laying the mines that have disrupted traffic in the Persian Gulf and the nearby Gulf of Oman. Meanwhile, Iraq said its air force flew 90 combat missions Monday, striking an Iranian oilfield, two sugar plants and Iranian troops. Iran said its gunners shelled "military and industrial targets" in the Iraqi port of Umm Qasr in revenge. The helicopters on the Guadalcanal are expected to help clear the National news Civil War papers reportedly stolen WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI is examining another cache of rare Civil War documents allegedly stashed in a safe-deposit box by a writer accused of taking valuable letters from two government manuscript collections. The trxive of 191 documents, many believed to have been stolen from the National Archives, was found Monday during a search of the safe-deposit box rented under an assumed name by writer Charles Merrill Mount, the FBI said. The search also turned up S18.400 in cash, a loaded handgun and 926 capsules of a drug tentatively identified by the FBI as a tranquilizer. the bureau said. Mount. 59. was arrested last week in Boston on a charge of interstate transportation of stolen property after he allegedly tried to sell rare stolen letters to the Goodspeed Bookstore on Beacon Hill. The FBI alleged that Mount had taken documents from the archives and the Library of Congress to Boston, including three letters signed by Abraham Lincoln. Envoys go home after peace plan talk WASHINGTON (AP) — The heads of U.S. missions in five Central American nations are returning to their posts Tuesday following a Reagan administration strategy session on the peace plan under consideration in the region. The envoys met Monday in Washington to hear the administration's position on the peace plan adopted Aug. 7 in Guatemala by the presidents of five Central American countries. What they are taking back with them to the foreign ministers of the Central American states is an analysis of how each provision in the proposed plan could be implemented, said a State Department official. The foreign ministers are meeting Wednesday in El Salvador to discuss the plan, which calls for an end to U.S. aid for the Nicaraguan Contra rebels and democratic reforms in Nicaragua. Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official added that "right now we have nothing to go with. We've made clear that it's the specific provisions that will make it a workable treaty." Go vernmen t predicts more red tape WASHINGTON (AP) — The Reagan administration, which earlier this year was predicting a gradual decline in the deficit, now says the red ink will get worse before it gets better. At the same time, the administration is postponing plans to send Congress a new set of options for reducing federal spending. In its midyear budget review, the White House said the deficit for fiscal 1987. which ends Sept. 30, will be about $159 billion. That's a dramatic decrease from fiscal 1986. which added nearly S221 billion to the government's debt. But the administration has dumped its January prediction that future deficits would remain on a downward path without any new spending cuts or new- taxes. Gramm bill: Cleaner Rio Grande WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Phil Gramm plans to introduce legislation calling for a cleanup of the Rio Grande, saying the Valley's source of drinking water is threatened by raw sewage being poured into the river. "If eventually forced to abandon the Rio Grande, a city like Brownsville would have to reach more than 100 miles overland to find the nearest supply of clean water at enormous expense to the people of the Valley." Gramm said. His bill would authorize the U.S. secretary of state to negotiate with the Mexican Ministry' of Foreign Relations a set of agreements to include a long-term examination of the river's water quality and the joint creation of water treatment facilities. An estimated 12 to 15 billion tons of raw sewage are dumped into the river each year between El Paso and Brownsville, although there has been no comprehensive study on the problem, the senator said. 38S 26 39V., 51 sf' ALCOHOL DRIVING DISASTER GOOSE CHEEK lift SVPfLY, 1C. 41M Iff RENT A-CAR U-SAVE 422-0535 Let there be light.
